Building Community through English education, conversation and cultural exchange in Hanoi

Founded in 2014, VCV is Non-profit organization for educational development, cultural exchange, and charity based in Hanoi, Vietnam. VCV specializes in helping Vietnamese students of all ages improve their English language skills. We aim to provide our students with the opportunity to improve their conversational English and learn the correct pronunciation of English words. Additionally through our classes and activities we hope to improve our student's overall well-being by increasing their confidence and creativity with the English language and opening doors for them to find well paid jobs. Our English teaching programs target local communities, specifically the disadvantaged in an effort to give everyone a chance to learn English. VCV's mission is to pair international volunteers and Vietnamese people helping to broaden the horizons of both parties. At VCV we believe that education is fundamental to sustainable development, therefore our aim is to create an open and fair learning environment for all our students. At many universities in Vietnam, students learn a lot of English grammar but rarely learn to correctly engage in real conversation. Once they graduate, they have difficulties finding employment in the best paying jobs, because these jobs often require high English language skills.

VCV is welcoming and enjoy helping Volunteers anytime in our volunteer home. Our students will become your tour guide. You will have lots of meaningful time to meet many amazing people, discovering Vietnamese culture, traditions all whilst sampling traditional Vietnamese foods. This will be a great chance for you to integrate into local people’s lives and traditions.

Words cannot describe how amazing VCV is !
I signed up to volunteer for a month and ended up staying for 5! Leaving with friends for life and memories I'll never forget.
VCV has felt like home, in a far away country. Ms Hay and the other volunteers have the gift of making you feel comfortable and part of the family. Next to teaching adorable children and motivated students, we organized some charity events/ team buildings/ fun day trips/ delicious food tours/ ...
Helping others and cultural exchange are central at VCV.
I have nothing but love for VCV
